Dinner-Theatre “V’nez veillez” – Major Manor Mayhem @ Village Musical Acadien
Jul 17 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Dinner-Theatre "V'nez veillez" - Major Manor Mayhem @ Village Musical Acadien | Wellington | Prince Edward Island | Canada

What happens when a semi-retired psychiatrist temporarily moves
into a seniors’ care facility to anonymously evaluate the mental status of its residents and when one of the residents mistakenly assumes the new guy is a vicious, psychotic killer? You get some “Major Manor Mayhem”.
At least that’s when happens when this situation is the storyline of the brand-new “V’nez Veiller” dinner-theatre production at the Acadian Musical Village in Abram-Village this summer. This production is actually the English version of last year’s hit French production, “Retour au fou-foyer”.
Well-known playwright-director Raymond J. Arsenault is back at the helm of this year’s show, serving up
his usual brand of crazy comedy. 

The hilarious Gerald Arsenault is back in a lead role as the handsome and entertaining widower Manuel who charms all the ladies (namely Hortense, the uppity old girl played by Janine Gallant, and Julienne, the sarcastic old biddy played by Julie Arsenault). When the also-charming psychiatrist Dr. Philippe
Thibodeau (West Prince dinner-theatre performer Michael Richard) moves in, Manuel becomes extremely jealous and sets out to discredit the newcomer and hopefully get him booted out.
Thankfully, the home’s new, ditzy recreation director Suzanne (played by returning dancer-singer-musician-actress Kaylee Arsenault) is there to try to prevent an all-out war from breaking out. But she unwittingly just fans the flame.
One thing is for certain. The audiences will have ample opportunity to laugh throughout the whole evening, especially when they’re not clapping along and stomping their feet to some lively Acadian and Canadian music, some in French and some in English. They’ll also get to enjoy a delicious four-course
meal served by the actors.
The show plays every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. from July 3 to Aug. 28. Tickets must be reserved
in advance by calling 902-854-3300.

Dinner-Theatre “V’nez Veillez” – Pi la mère marmotte @ Village Musical Acadien
Jul 18 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Dinner-Theatre "V'nez Veillez" - Pi la mère marmotte @ Village Musical Acadien | Wellington | Prince Edward Island | Canada

The overprotective and overbearing mother, Agnès (hilarious comedienne Nicole Richard of Wellington, making her triumphant return to dinner-theatre), is turning 70 but she still dotes on her extremely nerdy and spineless 30-year-old son Melvin (Charlottetown musician-singer Ryan Rix, son of singer Angèle Haché-Rix), who is still living in her basement. If it was up to her, he’d live there for the rest of his life to take care of her in her golden years.
He however has a girlfriend, named Stéphanie (Charlottetown actress-singer Anne-Marie Poulin, daughter of artist Lucie Bernadette Bellemare) whom Agnès despises with a passion.
Their two-year relationship is stagnant and they never do anything fun. Stéphanie wants to get married and start a family since her biological clock is ticking. But Melvin freaks out at the very mention of marriage and children.
Stéphanie’s ex-boyfriend Brad (renowned jazz musician Stéphane Bouchard of Summerside), who’s now a super-cool, charming and handsome actor, pops up seemingly out of the blue. He promises her everything that Melvin can hardly even talk about. She can’t stop drooling at his amazing transformation (now that he’s lost 60 pounds and has gotten lots of plastic surgery, fancy clothes and a new Ferrari) and forgets all about the way he dumped her and broke her
heart several years ago.
Stéphanie’s tai chi-loving, tree-hugging, hippy-dippy friend Soleil (well-known comedienne-musician Paula Arsenault of Abram-Village), just back from a trip to Mexico, drops in with gifts and an extremely risky plan to help Stéphanie pick the right man since she’s utterly torn between the two men.
The old snooping Agnès overhears bits and pieces of their conversations and fills in the blanks with her paranoid ideas. She therefore proceeds with Phase 2 of her plan to break up her son’s relationship. Unexplained pizza deliveries and a book of “positions” do nothing but complicate matters.
